The Well-Digger's Daughter

La Fille du Puisatier
France | 2011 | Daniel Autuil

The Well-Digger's Daughter

French actor Daniel Autueil, who first made a splash in America in the 1986 Marcel Pagnol adaptation Jean de Florette, stars and directs a Pagnol adaptation of his own. Set in sun-dappled rural Provence at the time of WWI, this color remake of a 1940 Pagnol classic stars Autueil as a working-man and widower with five girls. When his beloved oldest daughter becomes pregnant by a wealthy boy she loves, he kicks her out of the house. It breaks his heart to do this, but family honor must be maintained. “Marks a return to old-school French moviemaking…This is the kind of film they don’t make anymore, only here it is.” –The L.A. Times. Cleveland premiere.
